Each of these vases is unique. They are inspired by the work of Klaas Gubbels (Dutch grafic, sculpture art) And they have the same kind of lightness or humor, in an attempt to shake off the dusty image of silver. Contemporary silver art is made with a new mindset, still using the old techniques. They have been showed at various musea and international fairs. Latest at Gemeentemuseum The Hague, and PAN Amsterdam.
